Pop-Tops for Ronald McDonald House
A child with cancer. Families in need of respite, a meal, or just a snack during a difficult time. They can find these needs provided at the Ronald McDonald House near Hasbro Children’s Hospital, where all goods and services are from volunteers. WE CAN HELP! It’s so easy. Just save all the pop-tops from your beverage cans and put them in the cardboard red and blue house at the back of the church. Money from selling the metal supplements the House food budget for a whole year. Think about your Fourth of July party, reunions, graduation celebrations and so forth, and all those pop tops that will help our community members in crisis!
We remind all children that after they have made their First Communion are welcome to become altar servers at Mass. There are no schedules or assignments, but rather you serve when you come with your parents. If you are interested, please speak to Deacon Paul or Fr. Barry.

SANCTUARY LAMP MEMORIALS
There are still open dates for this year and bookings are being taken for 2014. This is a nice way to have your deceased loved ones remembered. The lamp burns for one week and the cost is $15.00.
Adoration is every Wednesday in the Church from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Do you know someone who could use a little lift? Perhaps someone who is sick or sad? Why not fill out the form in the back of the church to have a card mailed to them? Who doesn’t love to get mail that is not a bill or junk? No cost just a little effort and time – it’s worth it!
ARE YOU REGISTERD? Are you thinking about becoming a parishioner or simply not registered? It’s as easy as going online to our web site www.stmarybristolri.org and click on the register button! You will receive a welcome letter within a week. If for some reason you don’t, please give the office a call during regular business hours.
If you know of any of our parishioners who would like to have Holy Communion brought to them please contact Fr. Barry or Deacon Paul.
Adoration of the Eucharist Every Wednesday in the Church.
